HK45s have come down a lot because of the price reduction from HKUSA. I'm wondering if anyone thinks the colored frames have any extra value now, or if you think the values will hold up over time like they have done for the USP's in OD Green?
I was on gun broker and number of black HK45ts for only $770. I paid $980 for my OD Green HK45T back when they were $1100. Wondering if I can recoup that now or if I'm going to have to wait for 20 years.
I bought this direct from Hk when I was in the industry. Im glad the prices have come down but on the flip side I feel like HK really hurt those who had already purchased these at much higher prices.
I took a huge hickey when I sold a P30 recently. It was one of the 975.00 guns back in the day. I talked my buddy into buying it at that price. By the time he realized he'd rather have one of the P30sk guns, the bottom had fallen out on the P30 prices. His gun wasn't going to sell around here for even the 650.00 he wanted for it. I felt bad for convincing him to pay almost 1000.00 for it new so I gave him 700.00 for it. It took a price drop to 500.00 to move it. So yeah, I got bit.
When German-made USPs and the P30-series hit US shores again, prices will come down. It's amazing how supply and demand can make a big difference in a year!
Don't feel bad I got shafted for $1392 by GMP parts. I'll be old and gray before I see value.
2017 my first P30S was $725 ‘Boy, was that a good deal’. 3rd qtr came and everyone realized the POTUS isn’t selling guns, picked up a 2nd P30 for $535.
All mine are, I don’t mind buying new. Win/lose some, but for a depreciating/non-contribution asset – I only buy guns to shoot.
